Skyrim or Dark Souls?

I enjoyed immensely Demon's Souls, and have never played an FO or Elder Scrolls game before. However, gameplay videos of Skyrim made me think of RDR, which I also enjoyed greatly.

Which game should I get?

Go with Dark Souls. If you enjoyed Demon's Souls, I suspect you'll like Dark Souls as well.

If you want skyrim, get it on PC.

this is like asking if you want a broken steaming pile of crap or getting the GOTY Dark Souls

Im sorry, Skyrim is already GOTY. the only place so far to not think its worthy is Gamespot, and their nominees show they dont even care what gets it

I'll never understand how anyone can defend paying $60 for a standard service on a less powerful console

Both eventually.

Now? Dark Souls before the community dies out. Skyrim community will only get stronger over time (PC plug-ins) and later on you might be able to snag a GOTY edition for cheap.

Thank you for the replies all. Just decided to take the plunge with Skyrim. Here's hoping I won't run into the bugs so often pointed out.

Have fun with it! I should be getting Skyrim for an x-mas present and can't wait to play it. That said: I had an absolute blast with Dark Souls. Just got the platinum trophy, and put about 160 hours into 2 characters. I took a break from the game about a week ago in order to finish Batman, but I've been feeling the itch to play a new character on DkSouls again. Such a good game, be sure to pick it up after you're done with Skyrim.

You've chosen well with Skyrim, it's leagues ahead of Dark Souls, but you may seriously want to consider getting it for PC, or failing that, 360. The PS3 version is appauling supposedly.
